Actually more like 5.5 hours of driving down and up Rte 95. For a 25 minute meeting, but that's okay.
The bishop said my plan made sense and we talked through some possibilities. He wants to confer with the suffragan and the coadjutor, since he will retire in a few months and they will have to live with me once he's gone, but he is still the Grand Fromage, so I am hopeful that the plan will work.
Now I need to start looking closer at some of the options and figure out how this might work...
Note to self: next time, take the car with the automatic transmission if you're going to be stuck in stop and go traffic.
